Abstract: A theoretical framework for clustering data is presented according to the dissimilarity behaviour as measured via a suitable copula-based coefficient and study its main properties. The coefficients are defined in terms of copulas, which may or may not be Gaussian. Applications to real data are used to illustrate the usefulness and importance of our proposal.
